More Description

Over the last half-century, The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, has amassed one of the world's finest collections of its kind. This book brings together the best-of-the-best fashion acquired over the last decade arranging the pieces not chronologically but thematically.

One grouping, called "The Americans, " highlights such leading designers as Geoffrey Beene, Calvin Klein, and Giorgio di Sant'Angelo. Another, "The White Dress, " illustrates exquisite examples from the 18th century through modern designs. Other categories include "Men of Three Centuries" and "The Contemporaries, " which features pieces by the likes of Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood, and Gianni Versace.
